Karfin, derived from the Greek "nail" is a Romani word for something that holds different parts together. Families formed through adoption often incorporate more than one ethnic experience into their lives and try to put these identities together into a meaningful whole. Romani people are heirs to a long history, with a highly diverse present that includes an Indic language and the influence of many cultures. Romanies who were adopted usually have very limited access to accurate information about other members of their ethnic group. This is why KARFIN came into being. This group, moderated by a Romani woman, is primarily intended for adoptive and foster parents (who may need to discuss sensitive issues). Cultural information will also be re-posted on a group for Roma and part-Roma who joined their families through adoption or foster care:
